Roach & Bream

Two recent sessions with Mike in the Shercock area, on the 4th August a visit to Namacree for some roach fishing, single feeder rod, it produced good fishing and I ended with a 5.5Lbs bag of roach of various sizes. Few pictures:

On the 9th we headed once again for Shercock and this time we picked a lake which could produce Bream. Fishing was very good with again a single feeder rod and any bait produced good size roach and a few Bream. The weather was good at first but got extremely heavy with rain, thunder & lightning at times. Finished with 10.5Lbs. Few pictures:

Tinca Time!

Another great tench session with Mike from 7am to 1pm, over 50Lbs between us, great sunshine too!

Both fished one centerpin rod, Mike using pellets, me on 10mm Berkley boilies ; We missed a lot of fish with hook pulls as the lilies and weed was thick.

Few photos;

my swim, Mike fish:

Rain & Tincas!

Last minute decision with the weather looking very bad, headed to a small Carrick Lake this morning with Mike. At the lake around 6.30am and was fishing just after 7am; Decided on just one float rod, my newly acquired Maver Abyss X Series 12ft float rod with the trusted Marco Cortesi Centerpin, bait changed during the session but mainly fruity 10mm boilies/ worms on a Guru QM1 size 14, all this right on the bottom (about 7ft).

Wasnt long before the first bites started and by 7.45am I had the first fish bagged followed by another 25mn later

Rain did show up too, as expected! First it was a very short shower but from 12pm we had serious downpour, no regrets having to carry the brolly :)

Ended up at 1.30pm with 8 Tench, lost a fair few too due to hook pulls :( – This made for a cracking session with fizz and bites almost constant; Mike swim was somewhat quieter but got him 3 nice Tench also!
